This Chimera Quick Release Speed Ring is aluminum, and heat resistant. It allows mounting of Chimera, or almost any other brand rectangular softbox to a Comet CA, or CX flash head.

The Quick Release Series releases the tension of the wands in the frame of your softbox, allowing it to collapse easily for breakdown, or for moving on quickly to the next setup without disassembling the box.

      Comments about Chimera Quick Release Speed Ring for Comet CA, CX:

      The engineering and execution of this product are outstanding.

      My caveat is with respect to its use with the Photoflex Tritonflash which uses a Comet style bayonet mount. I enquired with B&H staff and was told that this was the speed ring to get for my Chimera soft boxes and that flash. When I received it I found it would not fit.

      The Comet bayonet mount features two static pins and a threaded locking knob on the light itself. The speed ring has three corresponding "L" shaped slots. The speed ring is pressed on to the light fixture then rotated counterclockwise and the locking knob is tightened to secure it. On my unit the L shaped slots caught on the locking knob preventing the speed ring from being rotated and secured.

      I had to take a small file to one slot and grind it until the ring rotated freely. Not for the faint of heart on a product this costly.

      Comments about Chimera Quick Release Speed Ring for Comet CA, CX:

      "Quick Release Speed Ring" made me easy buiding a soft box. I used to use all my energy to build one and got injured each time I take it down with regular speed ring. With "Quick Release Speed Ring" , because of its 90 degree turnable and locking insert hole, I use minimum energy to make a soft box. Taking it down is even easier. I just pull a knob and that is it. Only a thing to claim is its own size. It is a bit larger than normal speed ring and it does not fit in smaller size carry bag. Yet, I will keep using this product because it makes my photography life easier than ever!
